  • Bread and Butter pickles

    it's cucumber season here... just made these for the 2nd year... I like them... tried different kinds of pickles last year... some were real wild ( the mustard pickles for instance)
    but these went fast ... so sticking to just these..
    hope someone likes them.


    6 lg. ONIONS white if you have them
    1 grated or chopped fine large green pepper
    1 chopped red pepper is nice too but too high here right now
    1 C. PLAIN SALT ( has to be non iodized as the other will turn the veggies dark )
    cover with cold water
    LET SET OVER NITE in fridge AND DRAIN GOOD ( I rinse once )

    mix together
    6 C SUGAR 3 white 3 light brown
    1 1/2 QTS. cider VINEGAR
    1 1/2 tablespoons MUSTARD SEED
    1 tbl. tumeric
    15-20 whole cloves

    stir this as you bring it to a boil in a large pot...
    add the drained veggies (see below if there are too many veg.)and bring back to just a boil and remove from heat.

    quickly pack the pickles snuggly in the hot (sterilized) jars and fill to just below the top
    with the hot liquid and seal

    I wasn't able to get all my vegtables covered with the liquid ... when it was time to heat them....
    but once the 1st batch was in the jars I had plenty of liquid left to repeat that step.
    a little milder is all.

    pickles will be good even when finished.... but will get better with time

    looks like a great recipe Ron! my aunt used to make all kinds of pickles for our big family dinners, but I never got a recipe. I'll have to try out this one

      That looks good Ron. My wife used to make them, but she hasn't made any for several years. Now you've got my mouth watering.

        Yup, must be a family tradition because I remember Mom making them too. Ron, you're bringing back a peice of historical tradition here. Good one.

            I was looking for a "different" potato salad and found this one in my Field of Greens cookbook. I made it tonight and it is soooo good! Enjoy!

            This is a recipe I was introduced to by a neighbor when I was pregnant. I had just eaten supper but as a kind gesture for his labor, I aggreed to a small bowl as a taste test.
            Well, 5 bowls later and bursting at the seams, I decided to take home the recipe. Which I did and made some the next...

            Moving a year ago had the unintended consequence of losing all my cooking gear (long story). Now, finally a year later I've gotten around to rebuying all the pots, pans, gadgets, etc., and getting back into the kitchen (for the curious, I've been microwaving and eating out a lot). The loss wasn't entirely...

            Lemon Jelly
            by DJ Dubovsky
            OK, I got desperate seeing 2 trees of citrus going to waste. And being that we are not real marmalade lovers here, I figured why not just make straight jelly out of them. Well, I got a big surprise, not only is it easy to do but the results are excellent. It has a sweet taste of fruit jelly with...

            Ed, How did the Ripe red fruit preservation process proceed? Ours are just beginning to get ripe and it looks like a good crop unless the Raccoons get them. What type are you raising? Tom
